19th C Japanese Banko Ware Nodder Samurai Figurine

This wonderful Japanese banko nodder is somewhat unusual in that his head nods side to side rather than front to back like most nodders on the market. Dating circa 1880-1899, he was hand molded as evidenced by indentations and finger prints left by the artist on the inside of the bell/body. In excellent condition with the exception of one repair to the neck. At some point in his history, the weight broke in half and was re-attached. No other condition issues, no chips, cracks. This nodder measures 4.5" (11.4 cm) high x 3.25" (8.3 cm) wide.
